Berkeley LLM Traditional Track 2020/2021

Hey, I received a new e-mail saying that:

“Please note that all recipients of the Advanced Degree Programs (ADP) Scholarship have already been notified of their awards. If you have not received this notification from us, then you have unfortunately not been selected for an ADP scholarship.”


Same here. A bit frustrating... But there is the matching option.


I hadn’t realised that they only offer the ADP Scholarship to 2 people each year!! That’s crazy selective.

@New Delhi guys: did anyone of you attend their event on 7th March? How was it and what was discussed? Is it worth attending? Do they really answer your questions and can we negotiate scholarship? Asking cause I am thinking to attend the one in Mumbai today.

Just received my admission letter! Also got an email saying that there are only matching scholarship open for application, and I just applied for it.

Did anyone get a response regarding the matching scholarship yet?

Hi everyone! I am new to this thread. Congratulations for those admitted!

Btw, does anyone know if I can accept Berkeley’s offer, while at the same time remain on other school’s waitlist? Does Berkeley’s admission policy allow that?

As a background, I have been admitted to Berkeley. But I have also been informed by other law school that they have placed me in their waitlist. I want to keep my options open and hence the above question.

I think I saw in other thread that NYU requires its offerees to withdraw their applications in other schools (or something like that) when accepting its offers – not sure what the exact undertaking is or if this is true at all, I can’t find the post anymore. I am just wondering if Berkeley has similar rule/restriction?

Thanks in advance.

Hello people, who all have decided to accept the offer without a scholarship? How are you planning to fund the LLM in that case?

Still waiting on the Matching Consideration Scholarship Application decision. I believe they are supposed to get back to us by March 22 (that was precised in one of their emails) but I don't know if they will because of the virus. I emailed them a couple days ago to ask if they would and they have not gotten back to me yet. So I guess we will see. I just hope they will before April 1st because if they don't I will have to commit to another university.

Hello, same. I am disappointed but I can't afford it so it makes my choice easier. I will accept UCLA's offer with a 30k scholarship.

Good luck to all !

Hello everybody! Just letting the people who are waitlisted know that I have just declined the offer of Berkeley, because I was not offered any scholarship. An additional seat will therefore be available :)

I was also unsuccessful for the Matching Consideration Scholarship. I wonder if their budget was small this year? I’ll have to decline too, sadly

I'll also be most likely declining the offer of Berkeley soon so that should be good news for anyone on waiting list.

Same. Maybe I see one of you at NYU or Penn.

I have the same doubt. I have received a 30k scholarship from another school but I want to keep my options open until I have all financial aid decisions.

You are right about NYU. I received a 15k scholarship with its policy and terms:

"Scholarship Policy and Enrollment Terms
Our merit-based scholarships are intended to assist those whose first choice is NYU. In making this offer, we are committing our most precious material and reputational resources—one of our prestigious merit awards—to you, as someone of great accomplishment and for whom we hope NYU is the most desirable place to complete your master’s degree. Therefore, the Committee requires that you are not a deferred student at another institution, withdraw from all admission offers you have received, and not initiate any new applications nor request reinstatement at an institution from which you have withdrawn in order to accept the award and enroll at NYU. It is our expectation that you honor the terms to which you will agree when you accept the award. We rely on your good faith and professional integrity in this matter."

That's why I am going to decline NYU offer.
